Fun With HTML5 Video

Every now and again, it’s good to to have some fun with the ol’ wide web, and remind myself why I do what I do. One great article that I find myself going back to time and again is Mark Pilgrim’s “Dive Into HTML5“. The whole thing is frankly fantastic, but as a web developer who works with VOD, I especially get alot out of his section on HTML5 video. It’s pretty much all you really need to know, from encoding to markup.

So check it out Mark’s article. It’s well worth the read.
